entire premise of these tax reform plans is to grow the economy and create jobs. it's plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. now, we think that government taking 28% of a family and business's income is enough. >> okay. those answers weren't exactly full of detail, so let me see if i can help them out. mitt romney would cut all tax rates by 20% and reduce the top tax rate from 35% to 28%. he'd eliminate taxes on capital gains, repeal the alternative minimum tax and estate tax and cut the top corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. on the other hand president obama would keep tax rates the same for those making less than $250,000. he'd also raise the top two tax brackets to 36% and 39.6% and he has supported the buffet rule. he'd restore the estate tax but lower the corporate tax rate to 28% from 35%. so the choice is yours, undecided voter. but i see a clear distinction with one candidate supporting the rich, the other the middle and working class. now, on to a sliver of life that many see as only affecting one portion of the electorate but it's an issue that often divides us

certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mr. romney, of course, saw it a little differently. >> the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> good try but actually this month, the rate fell because americans were finding work, not because they were dropping out of the labor force. he was right about one thing. >> the american people have a choice. i think in both men we have individuals who cared very deeply about our country and care about the people of america. but we would lead america in very different ways. >> well, that choice was crystal clear on debate night. now, liberal pundits grumbled and groaned over the president' decidedly underwhelming performance behind the podium. let's be honest, i was one of them. i could not believe the president left so many easy opportunities for jabs pass him by. defund big bird? granted the president returned all the jabs the next day. >

economy because they go to walmart that money. a rich person doesn't go to walmart with their extra monday incompetent. >> if i had a nerdland sticker, i would give it to you right now. that is the break it down -- the less money you have, a little bit more goes right back into the economy. i have one question on exactly that issue. it's a question that's deeply stimulating. that's next.

the wars in iraq and afghanistan in the context of the economy and how we pay for them or didn't pay for them. >> it's funny that you point out that this should be substantive. the kind of debate that we saw last week is what i thought we'd see from the vps, low key. it feels like we have to be -- we using our boxing metaphor because it's like we have to have a fight. >> i disagree. the amount of fact checking that had to be done after his nomination acceptance speech. between that and between the amount of fact checking done on romney's debate speech, i doubt very much the people will take what ryan says at face value. i think there's going to be ruthless fact checking. >> doesn't mean it's not going to be a substantive debate. >> it should be a substantive debate. i think it will be. i'm saying his reputation as a smart thoughtful guy is crumbling. >> do you think that voters will be looking for something specific at the vp debate? >> echoing what chloe said. there will be this desire for fact checking. if we hear a lot about data which is one of the challenges for thursday's debat
